I've been attempting to build git head (4.11) on mingw but i am having a
bit of problem installing the updated autoconf package available here.


I am a bit of a mingw newbe do i just extract and copy over the new files ?

I tried this in two steps;

1) overwrite the /opt/rtems-4.11/  'bin' and 'share' directories with files
from autoconf 2.69
2) because there was a autoconfig (and auto* in /bin) renamed those with _
in front of them.

autoconf --version now gives 2.69, yay !

Alas doing a bootstrap gives.

-------------- snip -------------------
$ ./bootstrap
Can't locate Autom4te/ChannelDefs.pm in @INC (@INC contains:
/opt/rtems-4.11/share/autoconf /usr/lib/perl5/5.8/msys /usr/lib/perl5/5.8
msys /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8/msys /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8 .) at /mingw/bin/autoreconf line 39
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /mingw/bin/autoreconf line 39.
grep: Makefile.in: No such file or directory

------------------- snip ----------------

So i dont think i've done it right, is there a simple set of instructions i
can follow ?
